Rated 5 out of 5 by Pixelgrapher Luxuriously soft, very thin, comfortable but a bit clingy
I ordered three yards, which I prewashed on cold and put in the dryer on regular/medium (my mistake). Afterwards I measured less than 2 1/2 yards, so if you think your garment may end up in the dryer on medium, you should order extra fabric. The fabric is amazingly soft and a little stretchy. It's very thin and lightweight. It's not see-through, but it's thinner than all of my store-bought tee shirts (and it's also softer). This would make an excellent tee shirt for summer or a comfortable night gown. I am in the process of making it into the Cruise Club Kim dress from Style Arc (and adding sleeves from Colette's Moneta pattern) and I'm debating shortening the dress into a tee shirt. So far the dress clings on the back, which is why I'm thinking about shortening it. I love this fabric and I plan to order more of it for tee shirts and nightgowns. The color is lighter than the picture. It's more like a tomato red or maybe a fire truck red. I love red and I like the color, but it is lighter than pictured. The material also appeared to look slightly worn after I dried it; no pilling, just a little worn and soft like a well-worn tee shirt. Again, this fabric is very soft and lightweight (but not see-through) and would be really lovely for hot weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SewerKnitter Very soft but website photo is not accurate
In real life this fabric is a lighter, tomato red than the true red that shows on my computer monitor. It is more bright than I was looking for so I might have to send it back. Lovely soft hand though.
